Do you know what our city siren blasts mean? It's important to understand the signals.
Tornado Warning: Continuous blast of the siren: 3 minutes 15 seconds.
Fire Call: Intermittent blast of the siren: 15 seconds on, 10 seconds off.
Tip: If there is bad weather and you hear the siren, start counting off seconds. If the siren is still blasting continuously after 15 seconds has passed, it's time to take shelter.
